VALLEY, AL (WTVM) – Valley police tell News Leader 9 a man caused quite a scene at Walmart.

Police were called around 11:30 p.m. Thursday to assist paramedics as they tried to calm down a combative patient in front of Walmart off Highway 29 in Valley, AL.

Twenty-five-year-old Terrell Glasco of Lanett reportedly assaulted a paramedic as they were en route to the hospital.

The paramedic told police he was struck several times in the head and arms, then knocked to the floor of the ambulance. After the assault, Glasco ran from the ambulance into Walmart. 

Officers tried to confront Glasco as he was coming out of Walmart, but he ran back inside. That's when officers say the chased Glasco in the store -- running down several isles. 

When officers caught up with him, he allegedly refused to comply at which point an officer stunned him with a taser – not once, but twice.

Once officers were able to restrain Glasco, he was transported to the hospital for observation.

After Glasco was examined and released into the custody of police, he reportedly became combative again and started to fight officers who were trying to restrain him.

During this fight, a Valley officer says Glasco struck him in the face. 

Following the incident, Glasco was transported to the Chambers County Detention Facility. He was charged with two counts of assault, resisting arrest, public intoxication and disorderly conduct. 

We'll have a detail report of this incident beginning on News Leader 9 at Five.
